No privacy... 20100828_1236

No privacy... 20100828_1236

Astoria, Oregon

There just isn't much privacy anymore, which I discovered by accident while visiting John Cross
in Oregon. John and I drove to the Astoria Column, a viewing tower in Astoria, for the purpose
of taking pictures of scenery, both inanimate and human. We split up to fulfill our individual
photographic destinies. While minding my own business I looked up and saw that I was being spied
upon. It grated on my nerves so I photographed the interloper just in case I had to file a
complaint with the local authorities. My action was enough to scare him off. I think the guy
was from Texas, where everything---including the tendency to spy on others---is bigger.

By the way, John ( ) just happens to be from Texas. :-)

Nope, it's John on assignment to shoot the
Bridge to Nowhere.
He doesn't get many gigs.

... I hate to tell you this, Dave, but that's Larry on a practice assignment to see if he could 'blend in' (being from Michigan and all). Looks like he failed ...

Humour aside Dave, as if that will ever happen.
I would just like to say, this is a damn good photograph.
